Well, We Did It!

 Some time before Christmas I purchased the full series of The Fugitive. One of those great one day deals from Amazon. I checked it out on YouTube first so see what it was like. I liked what I saw. i am familiar with the more recent movie with Harrison Ford. This is not the same.

 They sure don't make television series like they used to! Thirty-two discs, most of them four episodes each.
For many weeks we watched Dr Richard Kimball criss-cross the US looking for the one-armed man. We watched the good doctor "toil at many jobs."
We watched him run across what must have been every single small-minded, paranoid policeman and sheriff in every back road junction.
We watched while he managed to stay just ahead of capture.

Tonight we watched the final two episodes. Thankfully it resolved and that is all I am going to say.  It was fin to see some well known "young" actors turn up repeatedly as different characters and recognise shadows of other popular shows of the time as well. We sure got our thirty-two dollars' worth!
We have enjoyed a number of "vintage" TV series over the years: Remington Steele, Andy Griffith, Colombo, and my personal favourite, Rockford Files.
Do you have a favourite show from "way back when?"
